  1. If price is right and that’s all you’ll need, then go with it. I took the other route and bought my next boat first and went with the 21. If the 23 would have been out, I might have gotten that one. There weren’t an good used ones at the time I looked. They were either all junk or way more than I wanted to pay for used.
  2. Thank you for your support; however, Memorial Day is about those who died.
  3. ok, I’ll bite. I got $1000 off the real deal price and some things thrown in at cost. That was the “boat show” price at the dealer. That was the best anyone would do on a new H2O in spring.
  4. I have the ski/fish version of this boat in 21’. Excellent boat with the outboard. Easy to maintain, great on gas, winterization is a breeze. Yes the real deal pricing is just that. The price is the price, I called tons of dealers and it was the same story everywhere I called. ive had my boat in fresh and salt water. Never an issue. We get tons of complements on the boat.
  5. Going to be 72 this weekend. Thought about taking the boat out. Whats this snow you speak of? More importantly why would you want to live somewhere where it snows that much?
  6. Similar story in my H2O first time I took it out into open water, though I’m only 21’ open bow. Definitely wouldn’t take it out again if I see white cap anything.
  7. You’ll probably be fine. It all comes down to your truck’s payload capacity (see sticker in driver side door jam) and tongue weight of the boat. You can probably tow it fine. You’ll want to see how well it handles and stops with that boat. Personally, I had an f150 with a very low payload capacity. It was loaded. With family and stuff in the truck, I had no capacity left to tow the boat I have. It was always a scary ride towing it at 70+. I upgraded to a 250 diesel, which is overkill. With the 250 I don’t even notice the boat behind me.
  8. Exactly. Limit the financing to say 5 years and see what prices do. I guarantee they go down.
  9. Financing is what drove the prices higher. You can finance a boat for 20 years now. Same with vehicles, once financing went from 36mo to 48 to 60 to 72 to 84, prices when up with it.
  10. I wouldn’t advise it. My f150 had issues going down the interstate with my boat. Plenty of power to pull it, I upgraded the brakes and it stopped ok, but wth family and gear I found I was overloaded. Check the payload capacity on the sticker on the door jam. Subtract out you, passengers and other stuff you have in the truck. Now what is left is what you can put on the tongue weight. I think you’ll find you’re overloaded. Now imagine if you will you are towing your boat and get into an accident. Won’t take a good lawyer to figure out you were over the gvwr. Your insurance likely wil
  11. I would say you can probably pull it, but I wouldn’t recommend it. I had the same issue last year, but with an f150. Stepped up to a 250 and I can barely tell it’s there now. That came in handy as I had to quickly stop once while towing this season, I didn’t flinch in the 250. If I was in my old truck, that would have been ugly.
  12. I’m in Georgia and we are fine. Just some wind and rain. Not uncommon for us.
  13. Here’s a link to a thread with the performance differences between the two. Different boat, but gives you a good idea of where the differences are. Next to none other than top end. If the same boat one with the f150 and other with the f200, I’d get the 200 if the price was only a couple g’s different. I own one with the f150 and it’s a great boat and engine. https://www.thehulltruth.com/boating-forum/606212-yamaha-f150-vs-i4-f200-not-big-difference-2.html
